well done Heli. A clever and meticulous, Finnish designer
It can take months, sometimes even years to develop a perfect piece. Each project work being challenging and constant interaction between myself and the customer it brings great pleasure to me as a designer.  To get my newest head wear design tested in as many occasions as possible, one crispy day of February I asked my model - and a top chef - friend Rosa to pack a day bag and we headed off to Suomenlinna Fortress Island in Helsinki...

Introduction
Irish jewellery artist, hill walker, beach comber & blogger from Dublin. (Ok I do have a day job too.) I wire-wrap & bead jewellery, accessories, bookmarks & ornaments. I love to use rare, local materials such as Connemara green, Kilkenny black & Cork red marbles. I also use beach glass, sea pottery & slate hand-picked from the shore & upcycled buttons etc.

Through this blog, I showcase my work, give tips related to care of jewellery, crafting & anything remotely related & share a glimpse of the beautiful Irish scenery that inspires me to create.
